Strategy Game Themed Collage

Title: Wargames

Date of Construction: December 15, 2017

 

This 32 inch diameter nostalgic collage is titled, “Wargames”, echoing back to the 1980’s movie starring Mathew Broderick.  This work is composed from game pieces drawn from all the strategy games we played as children.  You can find game parts from Risk, GI Joe, Axis & Allies, Lego, and Clue that ring a center composed of Chinese throwing stars on a field of clouds.  The outer ring is made of almost 200 brass jacketed 9mm rounds which have no powder making them a stunning border that is safe to hang on your wall. The work is created on a foundation of Baltic Birch and pieces are hand made by laser cutting and staining. Each carefully crafted piece is carefully positioned to create an overall pattern that draws the work together to be pleasing to the eye.  The items are meticulously placed with industrial-grade adhesive, with the construction beginning in the center and working outward to the final, outer edge. The construction process takes place over several weeks. The completed pattern is then sealed using four coats of epoxy resin, which creates a shimmer and protects the work.  The resin allows the work to be fully appreciated both visually and tactfully, as one can safely experience the texture of the individual pieces by tracing a finger over the hundreds of different textured pieces. This work is a beautiful way to inspire and calm your essential spaces.
